Working in the DLT / blockchain space delivering solutions on different platforms, Jim will review the digital currency landscape with a focus on FinTech solutions for CBDC ( Central Bank Digital Currency ) in the US. CBDCs have been researched by many countries and a few have implemented a CBDC. With the US Executive Order in March 2022, the goal is now to understand the value of a US CBDC in the economy, financial markets and trade and recommend how a CBDC should be implemented. We will identify CBDC directions from the Executive Order and the research the Federal Reserve and other organizations delivered. The Digital Dollar Project, a partnership of Accenture and the Digital Dollar Foundation, is leading the discussion and exploration on US CBDC with other organizations including DTCC. We’ll review work on a Fed Coin, the Hamilton project ( OpenCbdc ) reviewing scalable architecture concepts for a CBDC and the Lithium project ( part of the Digital Dollar Project ) which uses CBDC for immediate settlement of security trades between parties that can be regulatory compliant. Attendees will get a deeper understanding of the goals, challenges and potential benefits of US CBDC.
